No. 7: Offensive Line
Had this been written in 2015, the offensive line would absolutely be at the bottom of the list.
One year can sure change a lot.
The 49ers have almost rebuilt their offensive line completely. Former Pro Bowl tackle Anthony Davis has returned and in excellent shape.
The 49ers signed former Pro Bowl guard Zane Beadles in free agency. And seventh-round tackle Trent Brown has emerged as one of the best lineman on the team alongside veteran Joe Staley.
In the 2016 NFL Draft, the 49ers traded back into the first round to select guard Joshua Garnett.
The offensive line has now become a position of strength. But with change comes the uncertainty.
The group has played only four preseason games together, and players like Davis have been moved to the guard position. It can take some time for them to build chemistry together as a whole, which is why they are lower on the list.
Once they gain that chemistry and trust with one another, this group has what it takes to become the strongest on the team.
